Thread: Simpsons

    "Weird Al" was on it? Dang. I skipped it because the synopsis on my channel guide sounded dumb. It's one thing to retcon the ages of the characters to place them in the 90s. But what's dumb is there's no point where Marge would've been old enough to go to college, and not either knocked-up or married.

    He was on while Homer was watching TV, doing a parody of a Nirvana song, I think. Can't recall.

    Homer had invented grunge music and then went into deeper depression all because Marge was in love with her professor. The height of Homer's fame came when Weird Al made a parody song & video of one of Homer's grunge songs.

    I thought it was a really weak episode, nothing was funny and it smacked of "we're going to refer to this from now on as canon history in a ha-ha way".

    Bart and Lisa actually did the math and realized Marge didn't get knocked up right after high school. Since Marge is around 40, that left a 10-12 year gap between high school and Bart's birth.

    All things considered, I thought it was a fairly decent episode for The Simpsons. Nothing to write home about though.

    I got a good chuckle out of the mentally retarded professor/dean. "Duh I'll give you your PhD...Pound Head Down!" Other than that it was of a so-so episode. If there is anything worth praising in the long run about this episode it would probably have to be Marge's new design/look for the college flashbacks. In my opinion out of all the previous looks Marge has undergone over the years (green dress, business suit, cop, high school, prom, child, brunette child at camp, etc.) her college look has probably been the most attractive out of the whole bunch.

    Did they also retcon Dr Hibbert's awesome afro?

    Not that it matters. Try to use several episodes to figure out Wiggum's age, and it all goes straight to hell.

    Try and figure anyone's real age and your brain will melt.

    Yeah, but he's a major extreme. In one episode, he's about 15-20 years older than Homer as a kid. In another, they're the same age.

    Flanders is kinda the same; though they now consistently treat him like he's a really well-preserved old guy, some earlier episodes implied he was about Homer's age.
    Tommy, close your eyes.

    It was a watchable episode I guess, but does nothing to change my opinion that this show should have ended a few years ago.
    Hating aurra sing since 1999.
